INDUSTRY.co.id - Serang - Minister of Industry (Menperin), Airlangga Hartarto said the national automotive producers have been able to apply the Industry 4.0 system in the production process.

According to him, it is to strengthen competitiveness and play an important role in the global value chain.

"This is proof that Indonesia and other countries are increasingly competitive to enter the fourth industrial revolution," Airlangga said at the Inauguration of PT. Sokonindo Automobile and First Glory 580 Production Launch in Serang, Banten, Tuesday (28/11/2017).

The minister also ensured that the implementation of Industry 4.0 would not replace or reduce the role of human labor, but could encourage their increased competence to understand the use of the latest technology in the industry.

"People do not have to worry about the development of Industry 4.0 because it will not reduce employment," he said.

Airlangga added, the use of computers in the production system would create new jobs. In addition, the use of computers in the factory will increase worker productivity.

"In the past, we were afraid that computerization would replace our work, but the computer makes us more productive," he said.

Furthermore, he said, as the current economic growth is improving, it is also expected to be a momentum to maximize the utilization of the domestic production capacity of the motor vehicle industry. This is to realize the target of the automotive industry while increasing its contribution to the national economy.

"Moreover, the Indonesian automotive industry in 2020 is mandated to achieve the production target of 1.5 million units of motor vehicles, 1.25 million units sales, and export 250 thousand units," he said.

Menperin said the government is prioritizing the development of the national automotive industry through various strategic measures to attract new investment and business expansion.

Moreover, the sector has performed well, with growth of 5.63 percent or above economic growth of 5.06 percent in Q3 / 2017.

In addition, the transportation equipment industry as one of the largest contributors to the formation of GDP in the non-oil and gas manufacturing sector reached 10.11 percent.

"Therefore, we encourage increased production capacity through the provision of adequate infrastructure and enhancement of human resources and industrial management capabilities," concluded Airlangga.
